hm...I am not getting the point.

Clear question: is it possible to write
and distribute a Grok app as a standard Python package (with
a proper setup.py file in order to publish it on PyPI)?

If yes: I have a Grok buildout generated using grokproject.
The "develop = . " option is removed and the 'src' is also removed.
How do I get my Grok app living on PyPI into my buildout?
